TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

With the global trade war continuing to take a bite out of the eurozone economy, it is no surprise that growth forecasts for 2019 have been revised downwards. On Tuesday, the International Monetary Fund lowered its global and eurozone growth forecasts. In October, the IMF projected global growth of 3.7% percent, but this has been revised to 3.5 percent. IMF head Christine Lagarde said that the world’s economy continues to expand, but “it is facing significantly higher risks”. The forecast for Germany was lowered to 1.3%, down from 1.9% in December. The IMF said that German growth had been dampened by weak consumer demand and lower factory production, notably in the car industry. The grim forecast follows a soft Chinese GDP, which dropped to 6.6% in 2018, its weakest level since 1990.
